Developer description
Others merely measure heart rate - We analyze heart rhythm! In their lifetime, just about everybody will experience cardiac arrhythmia, frequently as heart palpations. Some people become scared and worried when they notice their heart beating irregularly. But just because you don't notice anything doesn’t mean everything is okay. In 50% of the cases, cardiac arrhythmias, like atrial fibrillation, are not detected. If left undetected or untreated, atrial fibrillation means a higher stroke risk. Preventicus Heartbeats enables you to easily detect whether your heartbeat is normal — everywhere and at any time — simply by using your smartphone with no other accessories. The heart rhythm analysis is understandable and easy to perform. Following the analysis, you receive a PDF documenting your cardiac rhythm data (included in the Premium package). You can save the document and also immediately forward it to your doctor. Under no circumstances should Preventicus Heartbeats be regarded as a substitute for consultation with your physician; it only supplies supportive data. The algorithms running the app use the pulse curves to generate highly accurate calculations of any increased occurrence of extrasystoles or the presence of absolute arrhythmia suspicious of atrial fibrillation. Warnings 1. If the flash on your smartphone becomes palpably too hot, please discontinue the measurement. 2. If your pain sensitivity is impaired, we advise you against using this product.
